is a massive expansion to Dying Light and the untold chapter of Kyle Crane’s story.
Techland has announced a new expansion for its zombie-heavy survival horror game Dying Light called The Following. It is a story-based expansion in which protagonist Kyle Crane travels to the outback. While there he meets "mysterious and fanatical cultists" that have information about the zombie outbreak.
As demonstrated first demo, the expansion will bring dune buggies and other new vehicles and The Following will be "feature-heavy" and "story-based."
NEW MAP- AS BIG AS DYING LIGHT
For the first time, you’ll go outside the quarantine zone only to get thrust into a hazardous outback overrun by the infected and populated by pockets of survivors who consider outsiders just as threating. With a region the size of all original Dying Light maps combined, Dying Light: The Following is choke full of new environments, characters, quests, and secrets to discover.
DRIVABLE VEHICLES - YOUR DEADLIEST WEAPON YET
Break pursuits and travel through the quarantine like never before. All-terrain dirt buggies are going to be your key tool to survival and getting around this hazardous countryside. Level up your new Driver Rank skill tree and upgrade your ride to create your most deadly and effective weapon yet. Fully customizable with specialized weapons, attachments, decals and paint jobs, your buggy is going to be your one-way ticket to zombie smashing mayhem.
NEW STORY - WHERE WILL THE OUTBREAK GO?
Players will again take the role of Kyle Crane, and will be thrown into Harran’s outback region, rife with the infected, where they’ll encounter a mysterious, and seemingly all-powerful cult, capable of changing the face of Dying Light’s world. To infiltrate and unravel dark secrets of The Following, Kyle Crane will need to face all-new challenges and use his abilities to the limit.
NON-LINEAR PROGRESSION - TRUST IS SOMETHING YOU EARN
To get close to the cult and unravel their secrets, players will need to earn the trust of the locals. Through various missions and tasks, players will be able to choose their own path for infiltrating the inner circles of the cultists. As you earn more trust, you’ll be granted more imperative tasks along with access to dark cult secrets which will help unravel the mystery that has taken hold of this once serene land.
Dying Light: The Following is finally set to launch during first quarter 2016 - although the studio didn't get much more specific information.
